About Me

I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University, where I am affiliated with the Future Intelligence Laboratory (FIB-Lab). I was a postdoc scholar at the Tsinghua University, advised by Prof. Yong Li. I got dual PhDs in computer science from the University of Helsinki in 2022 and in computer science and engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2021, co-advised by Prof. Pan Hui and Prof. Sasu Tarkoma. I received the B.S. degree and M.S. degree in communication engineering from Hunan University, China, in 2014 and 2017, respectively.

My research interests include wireless network digital twins, network simulation and optimization, and mobile computing.
